My toy photography buddy, Mitch came by and asked me to join him for a photo shoot. It’s been a while since we’ve done this together so I grabbed my camera and took a couple of figures with me the other day.
It’s a cold early Thursday while the sun is smiling at us as we arrived at the park. The great part was I get to spend my time with a group of 10-year old boys who got curious on what we were doing. They were playing at the park when they saw us taking photos of our figures. They asked me a lot of questions, they shared their own stories, their crushes and watched me photograph my figures. In the end, I didn’t get a nice shot because they were talking to me most of the time but I didn’t mind. I somehow enjoyed spending hours with them. They left by 12 noon because they still have school.
The wind blew so strong, that I can barely stand my figures up and I almost give up. Mitch mostly did the shoot while I enjoy the blue skies as I lay on the ground and listened to the wind. It’s a beautiful day to enjoy the scenery and embrace the cool breeze.
There’s no lake in the park, I saw a fishpond somewhere and I just used it for background in some of my photos.
Today’s set of photos are more on back of figures, an idea I got from G+ Figure Photography community, with a dramatic twist. Of course, I also include photos that you can see their adorable face. Mayoi and Kirino are mine while the one playing the piano is Mitch’s Nendoroid Wakana Sakai.
I think, these are the ones that turned out okay.
“I am a dreamer, I am a wandering soul…”
I’m not familiar with the character but I love the piano.
After the shoot, we decided to eat Ramen with little Miku.
That’s all for today! Next post would be either Cu-Poche Mami Tomoe or Kotobukiya Demon Fox figure, kindly watch out for it.
Yesterday, I also got a wonderful news. I can’t announce it yet, but you’ll know it for sure this coming weeks.
Thank you for checking out! See ya!

You have a knack for finding just the right places to shoot your figures! Hachikuji is a great figma too (Scher recently did a set with her on her blog). Looks like you had a nice day, looking forward to the next set!!
We’re lucky to have 2 parks nearby. It’s refreshing to go outside and enjoy the scenery. It’s my first time to take photos of Mayoi, she’s really cute. Though, I forgot to bring her stand so I really had a hard time standing her up. Lol. Saw Scher’s post, really great set of Mayoi!
Heyy thanks Tian and Sheng! I’m happy to see your Mayoi out of her box! 😀 Toy photography outdoors is such a great idea! Can you let me join sometime soon? 😀
looks like a nice location with the fishpond nearby.
I really like how Mayoi is balancing on the wood, however you have mastered it ^^
Yes, it’s a nice place for picnic as well. I want to go back there soon, the weather is really good.
Reblogged this on Locating Frankenstein's Brain.
When it comes to photography, there’s nothing like a nice day outside. Natural sunlight is the best ^^
Sheng, you should totally watch Tari Tari, I’m sure you’ll love it.
Damn great photos! 🙂 Sunlight’s the best! 😀
